Following the success of ‘Knowledge and Partnership Bridges’ in Berlin and Stockholm, Amsterdam has been chosen as its next stop on its tour of towns abroad that have large concentrations of Greeks. The event on Sunday 26 November will include discussions on the networking of Greeks abroad with those who live in Greece, the means of achieving this and the benefits arising from it.
In order to inform Greeks living in Holland about the ways in which they can join the worldwide network of Greeks, ‘Bridges’ invites them all to attend the event, which is being jointly organised by the National Documentation Centre, the Hellenic Community of Amsterdam and the Greek Embassy in Holland.
The General Secretary for Strategy & Private Investment, Professor Lois Lamprianidis and the Director of the National Documentation Centre, Dr. Evi Sachini will be speakers at the event, and there will be a ‘round table’ on the topic of the networking of Greeks in Holland. Taking part in the latter, will be Greeks living in Holland who are also actively doing business in Greece, experts in networking areas and live skype with Greeks who have returned to Greece from Holland to set up their own company. The round table will be co-ordinated by Yiannis Kyriazis, a specialist in education and culture, entrepreneurship and aid for the repatriation of Greeks Abroad, and will include:
Dimitris Kouzelis, Director European Patent Office
Charalambos Sergios, Co-Founder, IamExpat Media
Christos Pastra, Co-founder, Group Origins
Giorgos Mitrakas,, Co-Founder, "greek foodtales"
Ismini Stroubou-Alexandros Papacharalambous, Co-founders, Aethon (via skype)
The ultimate goal of the event is not only to create fruitful thinking that will mobilise concrete actions between the scientific and business communities and the Dutch actors involved, but also the immigrants themselves in relation to the interconnection of Greeks with each other and with Greece.
